Selling very very reluctantly due to Corona situation.
I bought this last year, it’s a 1978 Yamaha XS750 which has a triple cylinder engine and unusual drive shaft as opposed to the usual chain.
HUGE amounts of character and personality, sounds incredible, and runs very smoothly.
The previous owner spent around 3.5k on this bike at Bravos Motorcycles (Hackney) which is where is was thereafter stored and where I collected it from. The engine had a full rebuild with all gaskets replaced and huge amounts of other work done, new tyres etc. The light is not original but comes from a Russian WW2 sidecar which gives an amazing line – the speedo has been set into this.
I’ve just had the bike serviced and stored over the winter in a humidified heated garage – it’s just had an oil change, new K&N air filter fitted, spark plugs cleaned, ignition switch reset (it was loose), and a few other bits done (I have the invoice of £360).
Gets huge amounts of attention everywhere it goes, took it for a 2 hour loop around Surrey last week and it didn’t skip a beat. Fitted with very powerful lithium battery and also has a kick start.
Some of the paint is not perfect which I feels adds to the character and would not be a big job to patch up in places if required.
Located in Esher. Viewing welcomed. Bank transfer only.
